In this issue of Leading Well we look at why it can be so hard to get some of those messages across to your team that should be really obvious, and what you can do about it…
Have you ever asked yourself… WHY DON’T PEOPLE JUST LISTEN?
Some things are so obvious you would think people wouldn’t even need to be told them. Or at least you should be able to tell them once and they ‘get it’ immediately!
Of course if you manage people or lead a team you know this is rarely the case… Take wearing their safety equipment in hazardous workplaces. Or taking stretch breaks for keyboard operators… Or lifting things properly… Or finishing one file before starting on the next… Or keeping the tea-room clean… Or whatever that annoying issue is for you…
Not every message you need to get across as a team leader or manager is a big picture or strategic vision one. Not all could be described as inspiring.
Some messages are not even very exciting or interesting ones.
And some are downright obvious.
But even the obvious messages can still be very important.
And as team leader you need to do what ever it takes to make sure everyone acts on any important messages you need to deliver. You are the one who will be held accountable for their mistakes if they don’t do the right thing, after all.
There are four things you need to remember when you are trying to get even obvious messages to stick… Find out what they are at:
